I found this tutorial quite clear and easy to understand. In fact,
explained this way, I fail to see how people could find these concepts
difficult in the first place--but perhaps I'm prejudiced by the fact that
I've sketched out conlangs with very similar systems.
Incidental remarks: I'd always disliked Ebisedan based on its unconsciably
ugly ASCII representation scheme, but seeing it in the PDF as it was
"supposed" to look, I found it quite pleasant. What a surprise! I also
assumed that the graphs you used for vowels were more or less IPA values,
except that there is one letter that looks like a lower-case omega on my
screen, which is not an IPA character. How is that pronounced?
